You will have to roll the fender lips for sure, maybe even pull the rear a bit. The outcome will be 8)

I think that setup will be too wide for a narrowbody. Talk to Corey (Darling) as iirc he also had fitment probs with his Crono's on his narrowbody?

We're going to be mounting 16x8 et38 on a narrowbody soon. I'll let you know how that turns out. The car is on Tein SS.

i just found out that the 18x8 with a +30 offset wont fit, even rolling the fenders. (on a narrow body style). im trying a 18x 7 rims . ill see if it works,

I have 17x7 38mm offset and 215/40/r17 rub on stock narrow body fenders but are fine when unprofessionally rolled. Car is not excessively low.

What about 18x7.5 42 offset on a widebody? Will that fit?

I'm running 18x8 42 offset which required fender folding and spacers in the rear

Is that a narrow body or wide?

On a ST165 which I guess is wide body and a st184 wide body

I'm running 18x8.5 et42 with 225/40/18 in the rear (rolled/massaged) with 15mm spacers and 215/40/18 up front with no spacers. I honestly think 235s can fit all four corners on a ST165 with the right offset. HTH..

Sorry I should have mentioned my car is a 91 ST185 widebody AllTrac. Will 18x7.5 with 42offset fit?
